Beginning August 15, Michael O’Borsky, DPM, and Foot & Ankle Specialists will become part of Stellis Health. “I’m excited to be joining Stellis Health and provide more comprehensive care for all my patients’ foot and ankle conditions,” says Dr. O’Borsky. “I will be working closely with Dr. Mark Nelson as well as all the family medicine, internists and orthopedic surgeons at Stellis Health.”
Dr. O’Borsky will be expanding beyond the Buffalo area and plans to provide care at all three Stellis Health locations in Buffalo, Monticello and Albertville. He will be performing most of his surgeries at the Monticello Surgery Center to ensure his patients receive high-quality, lower-cost same-day surgical care. Having provided quality podiatry care in Buffalo for over 20 years, Dr. O’Borsky is committed to his patients and continuing to provide the full range of podiatry services at Stellis Health. “Expanding podiatry services at Stellis Health will allow all our patients to seamlessly access the full range of foot and ankle care from routine checkups to treatment and surgery,” says Douglas Hanson, CEO of Stellis Health.
Dr. O’Borsky views feet as the foundation of the body.

He strives to offer all his patients immediate relief of their symptoms, including pain and physical deformity. Dr. O’Borsky believes it is a privilege to provide both conservative and surgical treatments that can be life changing improvements and affect his patients overall health and wellness.

Join Vivian Rider, MD, pediatrician — and grandmother of an infant in potty training — as she discusses how to identify your baby’s body signals and nonverbal cues for elimination.
Where: Stellis Health-Albertville-St. Michael Clinic
When: Saturday, Sept. 23 at 10 a.m.
A Q&A and open discussion will follow the presentation. This is a free event but space is limited so please reserve your spot by calling 763.684.3600 today.
Infant potty training begins at a very early age, typically between birth and four months. Benefits include eliminating diaper rash and diaper-related infections, and reducing the use of disposable or cloth diapers. It’s also known as elimination communication because parents become sensitive to the nonverbal signs that their baby is on the verge of voiding.
Why potty train your infant?
It’s a natural process that promotes baby-parent bonding and brings you closer to your child. Observing your baby’s signals before voiding becomes part of your routine, just like signs that your baby is hungry or tired.
It’s the norm in much of the non-Western world where most infants are potty trained within six to 12 months.
How to potty train
- Observe what your baby does before voiding, e.g. squirm, make faces, breathing pattern changes.
- When you recognize your baby’s signal, hold them over a receptacle while they eliminate.
- Teach your baby to associate cues or specific sounds and gestures with elimination.

Did you know that our Monticello Clinic has a Little Free Library? Dr. Vivian Rider, a pediatrician at our Monticello and Albertville-St. Michael clinics created this library with the theme “Sail away with a book” to represent our beautiful lake country. She created the mosaic on top with hundreds of pieces of glass.
Our library is filled with donated children’s books. Kids can take home a book every time they visit the clinic. Families who have books they no longer need help keep the shelves filled.
This concept originated in Hudson, WI in 2009 and there are now over 50,000 Little Free Libraries in the US and more than 70 countries. And watch for two more coming soon, in our Buffalo and Albertville-St. Michael clinics.

The Bush Foundation is proud to introduce Cory Martin, MD, Stellis Health, P. A. as one of twenty four recipients of the 2017 Bush Fellowship. Each Bush Fellow will receive up to $100,000 to pursue the education and experiences they believe will help make them more effective leaders.
“The 2017 Bush Fellows are extraordinary leaders who make significant contributions to their communities. The Bush Fellowship is both a recognition of their accomplishments, and a bet on their potential to make an even bigger impact on our region,” said Bush Foundation President Jennifer Ford Reedy.
The Fellowship is distinctive in its flexibility, allowing each Fellow to create a leadership development plan that is tailored to their needs and ambition. Fellows can use the funding to pursue advanced education, networking opportunities, and leadership resources, workshops and trainings.
The Foundation received nearly 650 applications for the 2017 Bush Fellowship. Applicants described their leadership vision and how a Bush Fellowship would both help them achieve their goals and make their community better. The 2017 Bush Fellows were selected through a multi stage process involving past Bush Fellows, Bush Foundation staff and community leaders from across the region.
More than 2,000 people have taken advantage of the Fellowship to become better leaders through a self-designed learning experience, academic program or travel and research across the country to build connections with thought leaders on topics critical to their community. The Bush Fellowship counts among its alumni celebrated Oglala Lakota painter and educator Arthur Douglas Amiotte, internationally-known artist Judith Onofrio, and f0rmer Minnesota Governor Arne Carlson.
The total cost of care at Stellis Health is 17 percent lower than the Minnesota state average, according to a new report by the Minnesota Community Measurement (MNCM) nonprofit. The report looks at clinic costs across Minnesota and assesses whether the increased costs are the result of clinics charging more or ordering more care like tests, follow-up visits, and prescriptions.
